What is Good :
Kandireega is a movie that will make your stomach hurt from laughing out too much. Though the story is not new, the way it is handled and the tight screenplay do wonders for the film.
Ram comes up with another good performance as a scheming lover boy. He looks good and his dances are excellent as always. His comedy timing has improved tremendously and there is considerable ease and confidence in his performance.
Hansika looks good and does her bit as required. She shares good screen chemistry with Ram. But Aksha steals the show in the second half with her Warangal dialect and she turns in a lively performance.
Sonu Sood is just brilliant as the stammering Don Bhavani. His histrionics and comedy timing are of a top order and he is a major asset to the movie. He leaves the audience rolling with laughter with his brand of ‘serious comedy’.
Brahmanandam makes a cameo appearance in the first half and his ‘confrontation’ with Sonu Sood is pretty good. Raghu Babu enters the movie in the second half as ‘Intelligence Officer Avatar” and makes his mark.
Jayaprakash Reddy, Chandra Mohan, M.S. Narayana, Srinivas Reddy and Fish Venkat do a good job and support the movie well.
Songs are choreographed and picturized very well. Champakamala stands out for its excellent locales.
